Katy Donovan – Owner/Founder
As a former teacher, my guiding philosophy is, “An Informed Client is the HAPPIEST Client!” I eagerly look forward to helping my clients learn the market and learn the home selling and buying processes through up-to the minute property information and clear lines of communication and feedback. Bring me your questions, and I welcome any and all communication from my clients. This helps me become a better agent! What sets me apart from other real estate agents? I listen. Excellent client service depends on my ability to ask the important questions and to take the time to listen to your answers and feedback. I have learned that I am best able to serve you if I know exactly what your needs, interests and motivations are. I look forward to working with you.
My philosophy is simple: clients come first. I pledge to be in constant communication with my clients, keeping them fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. I believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, I haven’t done my job. I don’t measure success through achievements or awards, but through the satisfaction of my clients.

I will pay close attention to all of your wants and needs in a property and listen to what is important to you. If you are selling a home I will help you get the home ready to list and priced properly. If you are purchasing property I will guide and assist you with compiling a list of needs and wants important to you in a home or investment property. I will also create market context to make sure you get the best possible value whether you’re buying or selling.
My passion for Real Estate started years ago. I had a banking career for over twenty-five years, including financing, residential and semi-commerical projects. I managed commerical construction portfolios and interacted with clients and professionals and numerous different trades. At the same time, I had an interior design business which allowed me the opportunity to express my creativity in staging and the vision that makes a house a home.
Buying and selling is life-changing. I have over a decade of experience working with buyers and sellers, and I am fortunate to have a local team of mortgage brokers and attorneys who understand the idiosyncrasies of buying and selling in our area. Whether it is a waterfront condo, historic property, or a buyer’s first home, Aquidneck Island is a very special place to work and live. My clients come first, and I work tirelessly to help them achieve their real estate goals.
